2008 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Just purchased this vehicle after owning 03 Escape v6. Ford did a really nice job on the interior/exterior redesign. Smooth, comfortable ride, great visibility. Only complaints I would voice is that there is an image of the light colored dash board reflected onto the windshield via glare in direct sunlight...strange thing indeed...perhaps tinting or some type of dash cover is the solution to that one. Also, Bluetooth absent on a very expensive (but nice) Nav system.
Visibility and seating position. Comparable to V6 performance. MPG and friendlier to the environment. Very spacious and comfortable interior with lots of storage space for stuff.
Dashboard shouldn't glare onto windshield in sunny conditions. Bluetooth should be included with Nav.
